The Evolver Network helps people, ideas, and organizations evolve.
Local Evolver groups, called Spores, produce events and media, and build relationships among local leaders and organizations. The network hosts programs such as leadership training, a participatory think tank, and planetary healing calls. Together we promote and support an emerging value system that is sustainable, full of meaning and founded on human connection.

What Are Spores?
An Evolver Spore is a collective that may host events, form co-ops, and network together local initiatives.
Evolver Spores act as decentralized living learning laboratories. Spores connect local community and international consciousness, sharing best practices for a sustainable planetary culture. We encourage symbiotic collaboration and a culture of mutual support.
At an Evolver Spore event you might learn about:
resilience and sustainability * alternative economic models * healing * arts *
indigenous wisdom * plant medicine & herbalism * right use of technology *
local governance * urban gardening * design science * leadership training *
peace activism * sex & relationships * shamanic ritual * quantum physics *
bee keeping * open source software * composting * lucid dreaming *
performance * alternative media

At the international level, Evolver Spores coordinate to share solutions and innovations. We publish a monthly bulletin, offer public healing calls, and coordinate a touring artists circuit. Programs in development include the Spore Tanks (an online participatory think tank), a leadership training certification, an international time bank, and traveling educational dome for festivals like Burning Man.
